SICKOMANIA: "Sickomania" - Reviewed By Rocka Rolla ! Check it out here at this link: https://rockarollazine.blogspot.com/2022/04/sickomania-sickomania-2021-gateway-music.html
The band Sickomania gives a combination of modern thrash metal with style and rhythms between the 80s and 90s of some of the biggest bands of that time.
On the first track, Asystoli, we can hear certain influences of that thrash death metal but with a beginning of solitary and sharp acoustic chords as well as in the psychotic Path song with a deep solo guitar input, which then explodes into a heavy thrash metal, grave, heavy metal and with tempos between medium to fast.
So the album ends with a good dose of thrash metal between a modern and a classic style with acoustic and somewhat atmospheric musical introductions such as the final song Beyond the Ninth Gate, but then with pure thrashera metal explosion, like that of the Big 4 of thrash and with a little death metal. - Rocka Rolla !

SICKOMANIA is a new metal band from Denmark / Sweden, which plays with deep roots in thrash, but with several detours to both the death metal and the classic heavy metal. The band consists of experienced forces from bands like Dominus, Deadflesh, Timeless Hall, Carnal Forge, Loch Vostok, Furious Trauma and Shadowspawn. SICKOMANIA was formed at the end of 2019, and has since spent time writing and recording the upcoming album. The organic production is handled by the band's guitarist, Arne Lunde, however, the drums are recorded in Sweden, with Léo Margarit (Pain of Salvation) as technician. The album consists of seven regular and hard-hitting metal cuts, and ends up with the 10-minutes long and epic instrumental journey ‘Beyond the Ninth Gate’.
So far, SICKOMANIA has released 3 digital singles, all of which can be found on all relevant streaming services. ‘Saint Psycho’ , which is the latest, was followed by a video. The gloomy and beautiful cover is an oil painting, created by the talented artist David Troest, and the band's videos are made in collaboration with the talented photographer Bo Toftegaard. A new video for the track ‘Psychotic Path’, coming in November. The release date is November 5 via Gateway Music (Scandinavia), and Bandcamp (Rest of the World). Initially on CD and all streaming services, the vinyl is delayed (due to the pandemic) until January 2022.
